‘We Used To Wait’ is one of the more interesting tracks on Arcade Fire’s third album, the Suburbs, both from a musical and lyrical perspective.

Here, Brooklyn indie rockers the Drums take the song on a completely different course. The cover, recorded for BBC’s Live Lounge with Huw Stephens, resembles more closely a less jangly version of the Cure, in stark contrast to the original’s glossy barrelhouse piano-led arrangement.

This is one of my favourite songs on The Suburbs. Not too crazy about the cover; it's alright.

Haven't heard the cover, original is one of the best songs on the album.
